Default Corian Bowl

Made this bowl from 4x4 pieces of Corian I received as a bonus in the PR trade.

I was amazed at how often I had to sharpen the chisels. This stuff was amazingly hard.

What do you think?

What do you think?
Nice bowl Nancy Corian is fun, I wish it came in thicker pieces than 1/2 inch
As an after thought.
I think you need a Woodchuck!!

I used thick CA to glue it up and clamped it nice and snug so the seams are nice and tight.

Ken - if you want to donate a Chucky, feel free to send me one.
